First introduced in 1956, the Original Tall boot is handcrafted from 28 parts and built on the original last for exceptional fit and comfort. This iconic style lies at the heart of the Hunter Original brand.
The story of the Wellington boot begins in England in the early 19th century. The Duke of Wellington commissioned famed London shoemaker Hoby of St James to modify his military Hessian boots. These first boots, the Duke's namesake style, were made of leather, cut close to the calf and were designed as a fashion item.
1856 marks the creation of the North British Rubber Company, later to become known as Hunter Boot Ltd. Using the newly patented vulcanisation process, the company manufactured rubber boots and overshoes, alongside waterproof clothing, tyres and other durable rubber products.
